arguments like never before and in the battleground state of ohio, president obama is definitely on the move. the latest nbc maris poll has the president up. he is pushing hard about the dishonest ad about jeep moving jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking if their jobs were being shipped to china. you've heard about this. everybody heard about this? and the reason they're worried is because governor romney is running ads saying that jeep is shipping jobs to china. there's only one problem. it's not true. >> it's just not ohio where president obama is surging. in 22 new polls of battleground states, the president leads in 19 of them. the obama campaign is taking nothing for granted, however. and joe biden put the campaign into perspective. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. it's mitt romney's favorite time of the year because he gets to turn the clock back. he wants to turn that clock back so desperately. this time he can really do it tonight, it happens. >> in between all this
, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state did it only became a presidentially democratic relatively recently. >> when bartlet came along. "west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states, it if he loses ohio and iowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table in everyone. >> you get confused unless you are i just keep trying to figure out the permutations. everybody agrees that the path is clear and simpler f
a huge final push in the battleground states. today president obama campaigns in ohio, wisconsin, iowa and virginia. mitt romney stumping in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. they're running mates are also going nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington t
if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very excited. >> jennifer: wisconsin's early voting ends the friday before the election instead through the weekend, how does that affect your efforts to get out the vote? >> we know on saturday mornings we'll have thousands of volunteers out pounding the pavement and communicating with voters to get
in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some of the campaigns today. vice president biden was set to appear in virginia beach right along the coastline with his wife dr. jill biden and son beau biden. that event has been canceled. meanwhile michelle obama, the first lady, was due in new hampshire on tuesday. out of again abundance of caution they have canceled, postponed that event. mitt romney was due in virginia beach where joe biden was supposed to be today. they postponed that event. they've altered their schedules. they're going to be appearing elsewhere. you mentio
, swing states and ohio, romney colorado. give obama ohio and new hampshire. i think the point i want to make about this map is a broader one and it's a criticism and an expression of bafflement about the romney campaign strategy. if you look at that map, to win to get to 270, they have to win virginia, florida, north carolina. got to win colorado. putting that together, pick off ohio or some combination of wisconsin and plus new hampshire, iowa, nevada. a combination there and the polls out of ohio and wisconsin, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think i
morning to you. look, it is no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this is really the cornerstone of his midwest firewall. if mitt romney can't win ohio, it is nearly impossible for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs an
they need to double down. because barack obama if he wins ohio, he could lose virginia and florida and still win. >> they have been doubling down. they spent all of this time in ohio and because of sandy spent more time in ohio. but if we look at early voting polling that is coming out of ohio and then florida, the president leads. is it the obama ground game that's really pushing them ahead? >> it's the obama ground game. ironically it's also the republican party. when i was in ohio and talked to voters there and called people in florida who were doing early vote there, a lot of what's motivating really record african-american early vote turnout in north carolina, in florida and in ohio is anger about the tone of the republican party on things like voting rights, on things like voter i.d., on what they see as voter suppression. so they're equal part defense of president obama and anger at the republican party. it's driving what looks to be potentially record early african-american vote which only helps the president. >> and lastly the president leading with overwhelming support when voters
. >> hello, ohio! >> god bless ohio. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney's campaigns are practically camped out here. and each candidate has made multicity tours of the state just this week. winning ohio is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing t
and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufacturing all over the country. >> reporter: today the lords town plant churns ou the chevrolet cruz, the country's best selling compaq car, to meet demands it's gone from one shift a day to three, and round-the-clock production. dave green is president of the local united auto workers union. >> but the whole economy will benefit from this because our parts suppliers, the people who work there are out shopping at the stores, they are paying tacks, you know, they're investing in their community. >> reporter: the auto industry employs one out of every eight workers in the state. youngstown is the largest city in the region and reaped many of the benefits. it's not just auto breathing new life into northeast ohio. in yo
key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio who played president obama in romney's debate prep. 18 electoral votes in play in a state obama won in '08 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the the latest realclearpolitics average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at stake. obama won by almost 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3. democrat mark warner of virginia. obama won its 13 elector aral votes by 6 points is four years ago but now tied with romney and democrat mark udall of colorado. obama won the nine electoral votes last time by nine points. the race there now dead even. senator portman let's start with the state that most people think may decide this race and that is ohio. the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in the state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country while the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris first of all, you mentioned the real clear poll techs average in ohio being 2.3% in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9% actually and that is
are selecting romney on the machine in marion, ohio and it shows up obama. have you looked into these problems? are you concerned about 30 some days with voting in ohio? >> we have probably the most bipartisan, sophisticated count can operation that you can find in the country. there is always two republicans overlooking the shoulders of two democrats and vice versa. i think that we had planned for this. we are prepared to provide the security. the secretary of state has been on this but -- i don't know how they do n it in the other states. they watch one another like a hawk. frankly that is the way it ought to be. >> sean: let's talk -- look, according to every other person, we all know that no republican has made it to the white house without winning the great state of ohio will. you know the state as well as anybody. i was watching meet the press and you said with confidence you feel that the state has moved towards governor romney. short of the rasmussen poll, a lot of polls show the president is leading. why do you feel so confident? >> you have all kinds of polls. i am convinced that god
of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in ohio by the ohio newspapers, showing the race is a dead heat. that is certainly what i feel. i feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six rallies the last week and at a dozen victory centers and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch but we were down probably five or ten points before the debates and after the debates, well, we are dead even. >>chris: senator warner your state is in the path of huge storm, if you lose power could it affect early voting or an effect on election day? >>guest: well, chris, the governor has declared a state of emergency. i think we don't have an extensive as early voting in virginia as other states but i think in terms of how the president looks, it looks good. the "washington post" has a poll with the president above the magic 50 percent mark, 51-47 percent, and he had a great rally in ri
, the state most people think may decide the race and that is ohio, the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in your state and they also note they have 137 campaign offices around the country but the romney camp has only 39. >>guest: well, you mentioned first of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in ohio by the ohio newspapers, showing the race is a dead heat. that is certainly what i feel. i feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six rallies the last week and at a dozen victory centers and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch but we were down probably five or ten points before the debates and after the debates, well, we are dead even. >>chris: senator warner your state is in the path of huge storm, if you lose power could it affect early voting or an effect on election day? >>guest: well, chris, the governor has declared a state of emergency. i think we don
reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think
obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's high. this is both ways. if you are mitt romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone hig
. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a store today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a bi
